Another Thursday has come along and we are now on the letter U. This will be an interesting letter for our challenge. Thank you so much to all of you who have been adding your verses to the comments here. It’s been rewarding to read the verses you have shared. As you share I will add your verses here.
U is for Unless:

For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:20 (ESV)
Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3 (ESV)
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. John 15:4 (ESV)

and knowledge of the Holy One is *understanding*.”
